We have just instituted giving warnings. Any breaking of the forum rules will get you a warning. Also personal attacks against another member. We are all for a good debate, just keep the gloves on and punch above the belt. You can dispute someones ideas or views, but not the person.
If a member receives 3 warnings in a 1 month period (warnings will expire a month after receiving them), that member will be banned for a 1 month period.
If after coming back, the same member receives 3 more warnings in a month, the banning period will be 3 months.
The next banning period would be 6 months, than 1 year.
Hopefully we won't have to give out warnings and everyone will be NICE :D

OH, I'm glad I found this explanation. I was worried (even though mine was 0) why I had this and others didn't all of a sudden. That's a great idea as I enjoy this forum to be a civil place in which we exchange ideas.

The reason you can see your warning status and not the status of others on the forum is because that's the way it is set up. Everyone can only see their own status.

So what does the reputation mean?

If I wanted to say something good about a person, I would click on their name. That takes me to their profile page, where I would click on "rate" Then I could post a short bit about that person..."they are really helpful" "They really know their stuff" etc. Every time someone posts something good about another person, it adds a number to their rating. If something bad is posted it takes away a number.

Who "judges" warnings? And can those that "judge" receive warnings.

I take it this is to prevent PAST "judgements" from occuring like they have in the past? No "politics/friendships/personal relationships" influencing "judgements" in any way then?

Can I go first???

There really isn't "judging" involved, Terry. When anyone tells a moderator about something they think isn't according to the forum's rules, the moderators get together and decide if the poster needs a warning. I think there have only been two warnings given out in all this time. It isn't something that happens a lot. Most of the time our folks are very civil toward each other, and if we can catch something that seems to be escalating in time, we can just close the thread without it getting to the "warning" point.

Glad I found this! I get the "reputation", I think that is a really cool idea. I was wondering though why I had "warnings" yet didn't, 0%. I'm pretty good at behaving myself, so I think I'm okay!
